Poetry, A Bridge Between the Physical and Spiritual Worlds

Poetry is the language of feelings and intuition. As such, it structures the feelings and intuitions of the inner world in a form that can be apprehended by the outer world. Since it uses the mental matrices of emotion, feeling, and intuition, it does not have to conform to any idea of linear logic, which can be the antithesis of spiritual knowingness.

Poetry is an excellent mechanism to connect the physical and the spiritual world, a bridge between the two, a place where the two can meet. I feel that every search for God or spiritual understanding, is actually a search for the self. We search, I believe, because we all live double lives–one life in the physical world and another in the spiritual world–simultaneously. Our mentality, or what we call our personality, arises from roots in both worlds. We are spiritual beings who are presently experiencing a physical existence and too often we forget that we need to touch that spiritual part of ourselves. Poetry can, indeed, spark that remembrance of who we really are.

Poetry can reveal and evoke a wide range of thoughts and feelings: love, beauty, compassion, joy, mysticism, wisdom, imagination, metaphysics, spirituality, struggles, fears, disappointments –to name only a few. Often a poem is a spiritual or metaphysical flow of words filled with love and inspiration, and is romantic, heartfelt, visionary, and transcendental.

“It is a beautiful belief,
That ever round our head
Are hovering, on viewless wings,
The spirits of the dead.”
~Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896)

Contact With Spirit and Mystical Peak Experiences

“There is another reality enfolding ours—as close as our breath!”
~Don Pendleton (1927-1995)
I believe many spiritual experiences can be labeled peak or mystical. And that includes contact with spirit, whether spontaneous or by choice. Any contact or communication can be awe-inspiring, confirming, healing, unifying. Realizing that one is not alone and that there is a connection to the Divine is empowering. Accepting that we are all spiritual beings, whether in the physical body as a spiritual being, or on the Other Side as a spiritual being – we are all one and the same.

When we begin to acknowledge that we are connected to one another, to the Divine, we have laid the groundwork to sharpen our higher spiritual sense. We are powerful transmitters and receivers. If we learn to think of spirit communication as an exchange of energy, a radio signal, or an open telephone line, it becomes a normal event, and there is nothing paranormal about it. I personally like Joseph Campbell’s explanation of a peak experience as the moments in our lives when we experience our “relationship to the harmony of being.”

The Creative Dance of Reincarnation

In Western cultures there appears to be much resistance to the idea of reincarnation. Many do believe that we are immortal, but to allow for that immortality to have a beginning in previous lives, before our birth into this life, is difficult for many to accept. The belief in reincarnation, most commonly associated with certain Eastern cultures and religions, is not only an ancient belief but has been widespread throughout the world. Modern scholars have discovered that the idea had wide favor throughout the early Americas, both North and South, in Europe, and persisted into the Christian Era. Scholars can point to many examples of early Christian and Jewish thought centered around the idea of re-birth. Apparently the early Christians, somehow threatened by the idea of rebirth or reincarnation for the common man, had most references to it removed from the Bible.

Many of our more-contemporary great thinkers, philosophers, noted writers and poets, educators, and scientists have acknowledged reincarnation as the most sensible paradigm for human immortality. And the shift of paradigm in the Western world appears to be gaining momentum as evidence to support the idea comes forward from various avenues of serious study. It is an idea that will benefit from more exploration.

For myself, it has been part of my belief system for as long as I can remember. It just seemed to be logical and reasonable and a part of spiritual reality. Proof? I personally don't need any more than I already have gathered in my experiences and research. To me it is a fact of life. In some ways, I am still that young girl of seven or eight that knew I had been here before, and in all probability, would be again. Many of my experiences throughout life have only confirmed the fact for me. Especially Don, (my late husband) with the incredible love bond we had; knowing, recognizing each other the moment our eyes met across a room; and always knowing each other in the deepest sense of the word throughout our years together. Soulmates, you bet.

So is reincarnation part of our creative dance? I think so. Dr. James Martin Peebles (1822-1922), a leading Spiritualist in the 19th Century, wrote about the knowing of another soul in his 1869 book, Seers of the Ages. He penned, "Souls require no introduction. The recognition is intuitional. Meeting a noble soul that knows our soul, we indulge the pleasing truth to us, that we knew the loved one in a pre-existent state, and delicious were those delicate experiences in the sweet realms of blessedness."

Pre-existent state? Might I ask, where and when and in what form? A soul is a soul, is it not?–whether wrapped in the garment of the current physical dimension, or the etheric finery of the other dimension, or the garment of a past life that is delicately hidden away in the recesses of the soul's mind only to come forward in new and subtle awareness from time to time throughout the eternal journey.

The creative dance of the spiritual self personifies a succession of endings and new beginnings which go on throughout our human life–and forevermore.

But we are always filled with wonder–What is life all about? Who are we? Why are we here? Does life truly go on? When a loved one passes from the body and continues on their own journey, it feels very much like they have left us behind. But have they? Are they really out of our reach? Those answers are found inside our hearts, in our experiences, in our faith, and in the understanding that we are spiritual beings, only encased in a physical body for a short period of time.

Dr. Peebles wrote in his 1880 book, Immortality, "The soul is ever a questioner. From its earliest recorded experiences it has interrogated itself and the surrounding universe for a solution of the mystery of its being and the momentous changes that necessarily await it."

The creative dance is a dance of change and new beginnings.


Willie the Parrot, Hero

I couldn’t resist sharing this wonderful story of Willie the Parrot who was awarded the Denver Colorado Red Cross Chapter’s Animal Lifesaver Award the other day.

Last November 2008, Willie's owner, Meagan, was babysitting toddler Hannah, who started to choke on her breakfast when Howard was out of the room.

Meagan said, "While I was in the bathroom, Willie (the parrot) started screaming like I'd never heard him scream before and he started flapping his wings, Then he started saying 'mama baby' over and over and over again until I came out and looked at Hannah and Hannah's face was turning blue because she was choking on her pop tart."

Meagan performed the Heimlich maneuver on Hannah, which stopped the choking.

"If (Willie) wouldn't have warned me, I probably wouldn't have come out of the bathroom in time because she was already turning blue, her lips were blue and everything," Meagan said. When she accepted the award, she said, “Willie is the real hero. “

I heard on our local news tonight Meagan state that Willie had never before said baby and has not even said it since that day, even when prompted.

Quite amazing. You never know when a hero (or maybe an angel?) may appear in a time of need.

Thoughts Are Things...Thoughts Are Energy

Considering the economic crisis we are presently in, I have observed two schools of thought regarding that. The first, of which I feel a part of, is optimism and hopefulness that we will soon move beyond this and into a more stable situation. The other is a place of fear, apprehension, and even anger.

Will our economy ever be the same? I don’t know, but I choose to hold onto the thought that it will be, and will even be better. Creating that reality may begin with something as simple as appreciation for what we do have, and letting go of fear….

Thoughts are things…thought is energy….

I’m reminded of the spiritual psychology of spirit guide Dr. James Martin Peebles and his comments about "thought" in my book, Three Principles of Angelic Wisdom: “Thought is energy and even in thinking a thought, before there is any action that takes place, energy is in motion and moves out and around and away from its source. Where does it go? Into the universe. It is no longer a thought in the mind. It is a thing, a force and is alive and vibrant. It spirals through the universe and gains momentum on its travel.” If it is a loving thought, and “love is at its center, it radiates harmony and the spiraling energy becomes a fabric of eternity, never ending, never relenting in its power to bring about change.”

These two videos are from Abraham-Hicks. Abraham is the name given to an aspect of Source Energy which is translated (or channeled) by Esther Hicks. The first is about the Economic Crisis and the second video is an excerpt from the DVD, “Money And The Law of Attraction" by Abraham-Hicks.

On the Abraham-Hicks website you will find accurate clarification of the basics of the Law of Attraction and practical applications as well as up-to-the-moment leading-edge expanding information regarding the Law of Attraction. (Also known as "The Teachings of Abraham") This is the source of the information upon which the movie, “The Secret” was based.

What kind of thoughts do you choose to put out into the universe?


Beauty of Nature

Over the centuries inspirational writers have penned beautiful poetry and prose regarding nature. It seems that too often our perceptions of the wonder and beauty of nature are somewhat clouded by everyday life and we forget to relish what nature has given us.

Children seem to have an innate curiosity about the wonder and magic of nature, but it seems we move away from that childlike curiosity as we grow. When was the last time you bent down on your knee to examine a tender green sprout that had recently broken through the rich brown soil and wondered how long it would be before it would become a beautiful wildflower? Have you often longed to see the barren winter turn toward early spring and bring forth the deep yellow of daffodils and soft pinks of tree blossoms?

“A light broke in upon my soul—
It was the carol of a bird;
It ceased—and then it came again
The sweetest song ear ever heard.”
Lord Byron (1788-1824)

Dolphins Playing and Learning...Teaching?

“Adapt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

“All the animals excepting man know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it.”
~Samuel Butler (1835-1902)

“Unleash your creative power. Let it flow in all its beauty.” ~Don Pendleton (1927-1995)

My thanks to Ann Albers, Visions of Heaven, for bringing this inspirational video to my attention by featuring it in her newsletter this week.

There is a River: the Life of Edgar Cayce, A Life Changing Book

Today my friend Ricky Kendall emailed me about seeing the book, There is a River: the Life of Edgar Cayce, by Thomas Sugrue, on my Favorites Book list. There Is A River, was developed during Sugrue's intimate association with Cayce and was first published by Henry Holt and Company in 1942, still regarded as the most definitive study of Cayce's life and his extraordinary psychic gift.

And Ricky told me what that book meant to him. His story is so familiar. I have heard over and over again from friends, acquaintances, and from fan mail, how they had read There is a River, usually in years past, and how the book was a catalyst for their spiritual search and understandings.

I’m not sure what year I first read it, maybe late 1950’s. It is very possible my father had it in his paperback collection when I was in Junior High or High School. I do know we had discussions about Cayce. If I had not read it then, it would have been not long after.

Ricky had this to say today:

I noticed on your "Population Unknown" blog you have Thomas Sugrue's "There is a River". Did that ever bring back memories. We used to have weekly gatherings, back home in ….Wyoming, of family and friends to hold séances. I monitored the séances because I had taken a short tutorial on hypnosis and everyone felt I could best make them feel at ease and help any medium come through [with spirit]. It worked!

My uncle was a medium until his wife put an end to it. She did not approve. We learned a lot from him. A friend of the family who was Wiccan, Bonnie ... came through as a medium later on during one of our session. She has since passed away but I have many of her letters. I couldn't bear to throw them out because of the beautiful signs and art on them. She was a member of the Scottish Wicca. She was amazing.

Our little gatherings would last about 3 hours and we'd always have some sort of treat afterward while we discussed UFO's, psychic phenomenon, ghosts, lost treasures and anything fun. I usually made chocolate chip date cake which everyone loved. It was easy to hold and no frosting. The meetings actually got out of control at one point because people in town heard about it and wanted to attend. You wouldn't believe the unfamiliar faces that would be knocking at our door before the meetings, wanting to attend.

When my uncle was a medium, he actually solved a murder case in our town before the police even knew who the murderer was. He explained the entire event from start to finish. It was a local high school student who had stabbed two girls after the annual Christmas tree bon fire at the city park. It actually scared us all half to death but it also added more interest for us and it had to become more secret. What my uncle had told us had to be kept hush, hush. How on earth would we even begin to explain to a small town police department that the information came through a séance. The murderer was finally caught about a year later and the entire series of events were a perfect match to what he had told us. It was an amazing time for me. I was a sophomore in high school.

The reason I wanted to tell you this story is that "There is a River" was a huge part of our weekly discussions. We read it together, talked about it, added our own philosophies and spiritual accents and just enjoyed the hell out of it. Sometimes I wonder if this isn't what religion is really all about. Getting together and sharing spiritual knowledge from every possible source. I hope you enjoyed that book as much as we did. I love Edgar Cayce's writings.
* * * * * * *

I think Ricky is correct; if this is not what religion is about, then it should be. A sharing of spiritual knowledge and spiritual experiences. Stepping out of the BOX, and exploring other ideas, because after all, we are all spiritual beings.

I can also relate to the situation with the uncle knowing facts about the murders. About twenty years ago, a reputable and credible psychic from Southern California received information from beyond regarding the death of a missing young boy. He headed up a very small group of sensitives who often worked discreetly with the police department on security issues and other matters. So he went to them with the information that had come to him. And the cops were very suspicious of him, suspicious enough that he become very concerned. He spoke with us about it. As it turned out, sadly, the young boy was murdered, and the details matched what he had “known.” I believe he was a little uneasy until the suspect was arrested and charged with the kidnap and murder of the boy. So I understand the uneasiness that Ricky’s family and friends felt over the information that came to his uncle.

I had mentioned to Ricky that I was surprised by an interest in the paranormal during those earlier years and in a small town in Wyoming.

And he told me, “these people have more time, slower paced and quite possibly bored. The idea of séances and the supernatural was like a new blockbuster movie to them. What is even more fascinating is the intelligent input by many of them. Deep down they had a real thirst for knowing what was around them, in this life and the afterlife. I have to say that very few of them had a religious affiliation that peaked their interest enough to go to church to find the answers. They were all looking for another [spiritual] source and they were full of questions and many had very plausible and interesting answers.”

Heck, maybe that is what it is all about. An innate thirst for knowing--a search for answers.

And for many that thirst led them to reading There is a River and within the pages of that book the American public was first widely exposed to mediumship and reincarnationist thought through the work of Edger Cayce.

Edger Cayce had a psychic gift beyond compare, but Thomas Sugru also had a gift he shared, his talent for writing an extraordinary book about the life of Edger Cayce and his psychic work.
And they both gave us inspiration.

Read Part Two: Edgar Cayce, The Mystical Odyssey


Edger Cayce, The Mystical Odyssey

The American public was first widely exposed to reincarnationist thought through the work of Edger Cayce and the many books that were spawned by his extraordinary psychic gift. The first such book, There Is A River, by Thomas Sugrue, was developed during Sugrue's intimate association with Cayce and was first published by Henry Holt and Company in 1942, still regarded as the most definitive study of Cayce's life.

Below is an excerpt from my book, Whispers From the Soul: The Divine Dance of Consciousness by Don and Linda Pendleton.

Born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky in 1877, Edger Cayce was but twelve years old when the first awakening of his mystical nature became manifest. A Biblical scholar with an innate religious sense, he had very early on resolved to read the Holy Bible from cover to cover at least once for every year of his life. By the age of twelve, he had read the entire Bible twelve times. His favorite reading spot was in a playhouse which he had built for himself beside a creek in the woods where he went every afternoon to study the Bible.

While so engrossed one day, reading the story of Manoah in the Book of Judges, in which the conception of Samson by his barren mother was revealed to her and her husband, Manoah, by an angel who later ascended into heaven, the young Cayce looked up to see a woman standing before him. "I thought it was my mother, come to fetch me home for the chores. Then I saw that she was not my mother, and that she had wings on her back. She said to me, 'Your prayers have been answered, little boy. Tell me what it is you want most of all, so that I may give it to you.' I was very frightened, but after a minute I managed to say, 'Most of all I would like to be helpful to other people, especially children.' Then she disappeared...the next day in school I couldn't spell a word, and was kept after school...that night I slept on my spelling book and knew everything in the book when I woke up."

Cayce had a rather routine and uneventful life during his early adulthood but the event that was to profoundly change his life occurred when he was twenty-three. He became ill and lost his voice, unable to speak for nearly a year except in a whisper, and sought the help of a hypnotist after all medical remedies had failed.

While under hypnosis, he spoke without difficulty in a clear and natural voice. But then something incredible was also going on. As his speech began, his first words were, "Yes, we can see the body." This was soon to become recognized as a standard "opening statement" from his deep hypnotic trance state, the signal that he was in contact with another reality–and this first "reading" was to provide the diagnosis, treatment and cure of his own affliction.

The message through Cayce's voice continued, "In the normal state, this body is unable to speak, due to a partial paralysis of the inferior muscles of the vocal chords, produced by nerve strain. This is a psychological condition producing a physical effect. This may be removed by increasing the circulation to the affected parts by suggestion while in this unconscious condition."

This was but the beginning of the most astounding Odyssey of psychic experiences ever documented during modern times. While in deep trance, Cayce was able to diagnose illness and prescribe treatment for others even at long distance and with no physical contact between Cayce and his patients.

One of Cayce's earliest consultations was for a five year old girl who had been ill for three years and was suspected of some degree of mental retardation, suffering from convulsive seizures following an attack of grippe [influenza] at age two. She had been seen by many medical specialist without relief and the seizure episodes were intensifying, then experiencing up to twenty per day at the time Cayce was asked to help her. Through his trance state, it was determined that the child had suffered an injury to her lower spine as a result of a fall from her carriage days before the onset of flu symptoms. Cayce's diagnosis showed that the grippe germs had settled in the injured spine area which produced the convulsions and subsequent lack of mental development. He recommended specific, gentle osteopathic adjustments of the spine. The first adjustment was not dramatically effective and a subsequent reading told the doctor that the adjustment was not quite right. The following adjustment was properly done according to a "check-reading" and instructions were given to continue the spinal adjustments every day for the next three weeks. Within a week, the child was responding dramatically. At the end of the third week, Cayce, in trance, reported that the condition had been corrected and that the child was developing normally and would continue to do so without further treatments. By the time three months had passed, the child was normal in all respects and regaining the mental growth lost during those three years.

His medical readings assisted thousands of men, women and children around the world for the next twenty-two years before he entered a new phase in 1923, the "life readings" for the mind and soul, which produced the first reincarnation/past-lives and prophetic studies, the centerpiece of Cayce's work from that point forward until shortly before his death twenty-one years later.

Cayce, a devout Christian, was deeply concerned by the past-life readings, plunging him into a concerted study of the scriptures before he was able to reconcile these apparent conflicts with his Christian beliefs.

The A.R.E., Association for Research and Enlightenment, was founded by Cayce and supporters in 1931 at Virginia Beach, Virginia. Cayce died in 1945 at the age of sixty-seven but the A.R.E. foundation remains highly active to this day. More than thirty thousand stenographic records of his diagnoses, life readings and case studies, containing affidavits and reports by physicians and patients, are still being categorized, researched and published by the foundation.

Cayce was characterized as a clairvoyant and, indeed, he seemed more comfortable with that idea and preferred to think that he was merely somehow able to tap into the "Akashic Record," which is the concept that every thought, every movement, every sound since the beginning of creation is indelibly impressed into the fundamental etheric substance of the universe. One might say, impressed into the memory of God. Carl Jung's collective unconscious would seem to suggest something of this nature.

However, by Cayce's own records, it did seem that from time to time he was communicating directly with the consciousness of individual souls on the other side and sometimes engaged in dialogues with them. He did not appear to be "taken over" in any physical sense by another entity during his trance state though on occasion an entity would speak through him. It could be noted that Cayce consciously had no memory whatever of the sessions until he read them from the transcripts.

Apparently, also, Cayce was able to see auras and to diagnose medical conditions while in a complete waking state, thus it is obvious that he did possess a superior psychic sense in or out of trance.

From our own personal direct association with other trance-mediums, the entities who come through these mediums exhibit definite and memorable personality traits which could not be ascribed to some impersonal source such as the "Akashic Record." These spirits are usually highly personal, even engaging in quite detailed discussions with their clients, are often very humorous, displaying strongly identifiable mannerisms and figures of speech.

Whatever the source of Edgar Cayce's spectacular gifts, they have provided new windows through which ordinary people may perceive reality and often transform their lives.

We all are richer because of Edgar Cayce.

A Prayer In His Watch Pocket: Abraham Lincoln

You never know what may be in your pocket. Did President Lincoln know what was in his? Nearly 150 years ago, in April of 1861, shortly following the attack of Fort Sumter, South Carolina by Confederate Rebels, a secret cursive inscription was etched into a metal plate under the watch face of Abraham Lincoln’s gold pocket watch.

Jonathan Dillon, a watchmaker for the M.W. Galt & Company on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. apparently was repairing Lincoln’s watch when he was told of the outbreak of the Civil War. Later claiming to be the only Union sympathizer working at the jewelry company, he stated he had added a Civil War message to the watch that day.

In 1906 at the age of 84, Dillon told a New York Times reporter about his engraving. For years the Dillon family and friends heard the “tale” of the engraving on Lincoln’s watch. Although his recollection in 1906 was not completely accurate as it has now turned out, the sentiment was there. He had said his engraved words were, “The first gun is fired. Slavery is dead. Thank God we have a president who at least will try.”

The gold pocket watch has been in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History for a number of years. It may be the 200th anniversary celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, along with comments from relatives that lead Jonathan Dillon’s great-great grandson Doug Stiles, to do a Google search on the Internet and find the 1906 newspaper article about the engraving of the watch. He notified Smithsonian curators, who knew nothing of the engraving inside the pocket watch. This past Tuesday, a press conference was held as watchmaker George Thomas, a museum volunteer, carefully opened the watch before an audience of museum workers and reporters who watched on a video monitor. With a magnifying glass, Doug Stiles read his great-great grandfather’s words: “Jonathan Dillon April 13-1861 Fort Sumpter [sic] was attacked by the rebels on the above date. J Dillon” And then, “April 13-1861 Washington thank God we have a government Jonth Dillon.” The actual attack took place on the 12th of April, 1861.

So in a way, President Lincoln had in his pocket a prayer, words of gratitude, along with messages of wisdom and inspiration which he often received from his “friends from the upper country.” And as we know, angels work in mystical and mysterious ways, and maybe this Irish immigrant watchmaker was a “messenger” of the message to the man who was leading our government during a chaotic and terrible time in our history.

As part of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, the Museum has brought together its unique Lincoln collection. Through a focused selection of nationally important Lincoln artifacts, visitors may explore the life and times of this extraordinary man. The museum website states, “Each highlighted object will be augmented with personal stories told by Lincoln and the people who knew him best. The exhibition will showcase more than 60 historical treasures associated with Lincoln's life from an iron wedge he used to split wood in the early 1830s in New Salem, Ill., to his iconic top hat he wore the night he was shot at Ford’s Theatre. The exhibition will tell a new and very intimate story of the life and legacy of this remarkable individual.”

See the Online Lincoln Exhibit.

I love the unfolding and revealing of all sides of our sixteenth President. As I have written in my latest ebooks I always have admired Lincoln’s spiritual side. And what better thing to be revealed now in this year of his birthday celebration than the message his pocket watch carried, and which he held often in his hand, possibly without ever knowing what was hidden away behind the dial of his pocket watch.

Spring Has Arrived

Over the centuries inspirational writers have penned beautiful poetry and prose regarding nature. It seems that too often our perceptions of the wonder and beauty of nature become somewhat clouded by everyday life and we fail to relish what nature has given us.

When was the last time you bent down on your knee to examine a tender green sprout that had recently broken through the rich brown soil and wondered how long it would be before it would became a beautiful wildflower? Have you often longed to see the barren winter turn toward early spring and bring forth the deep yellow of daffodils and soft pinks of tree blossoms?

“Come spring
With all its splendor,
All its birds and all its blossoms,
All its flowers, and leaves and grasses.”
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)

“One is nearer God’s heart in a garden
than anywhere else on earth.”
~Dorothy Gurney (1858-1932)

“Flowers are God’s divine bibles.”
~James Martin Peebles (1822-1922)

“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”
~William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

“Each flower is a soul opening out to nature.”
~Gerard de Nerval (1808-1855)

“Look about, O what do I see?
O Spring, smiling at me—
Wake up, O pretty flower,
Spring has come, now is the hour!”

Power of Thought, A Major Spiritual Lesson

For many the economic situation is fueling anxiety and fear and being exposed to the news of the situation via our media which is too often negative energy, you can’t help but wonder what that negativity is doing? Some fear change. Fear drains energy.

But for many, despite the economic situation, the energy is positive, hopeful and optimistic. Those people know change is upon us and are eagerly accepting it.

Dr. James Martin Peebles (1822-1922), now a spirit guide, gives us his spiritual psychology and within his teachings are these very important Three Spiritual Principles.

* Loving Allowance for all things to be in their own time and place, beginning with yourself.
* Increased Communication with all of life everywhere, and with respect.
* Self Responsibility, for you are the eternal creator never the victim

In this excerpt from my book, Three Principles of Angelic Wisdom, Dr. James Martin Peebles had this to say when I asked him, “Can you speak of the energy dynamic of the principles—if there is one to be considered?”

Dr. Peebles: “As we have said, thought is energy. And within the concept of the principles is thought, which come before action. So when one even begins it think of the three principles, energy is in motion and moves out and around and away from its source. Where does it go? Into the universe. It is no longer just a thought in the mind. It is a thing, a force and is alive and vibrant. And when the triad of principles are put in action and reaction, the force of that energy not only moves within the heart and mind of self, but radiates out touching all in its path. It spirals through the universe and gains momentum on its travel. The journey becomes one of gigantic proportions and is ever-expanding in energy. Because love is at its center, it radiates harmony and the spiraling energy becomes a fabric of eternity, never ending, never relenting in its power to bring about change.”

So which outlook do you choose and want to create for your life?

The spiritual lesson is to change fear and anxiety into courage and hope.
